Refirme is a welcome change from some of the more traditional cosmetic procedures that are designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, cellulite, and sagging skin. There is virtually no pain or discomfort associated with Refirme, and results are apparent after only one treatment.
Refirme can be used on almost any area of the body that is lax or bagging. It works beautifully on the eye and brow areas, nasolabial folds, and neck. It is also an ideal procedure for swimsuit season, as it can be used to shore up baggy knees, smooth cellulite on the thighs, and firm up the abdomen. Some have even used it to achieve more youthful hands.
Because the Refirme procedure is non-surgical and causes little discomfort, it is administered without sedative or anesthesia. The treatment usually requires between 35 minutes to an hour and there is absolutely no downtime associated with Refirme. You do not have to hide behind bandages or endure ugly scabbing and bruising. You walk away from Refirme looking smoother, sleeker, and fresher and go right on with your daily routine.
The technology used in Refirme has been referred to as “magic” by some patients. Refirme marries electrical current in the form of radio frequency with infra-red light energy to administer pulses which stimulate collagen contraction and production. A wand is used to gently target problem areas. The patient rests comfortably during the procedure. Although results are apparent at once, normally three to four treatments are needed to achieve the maximum benefit.
The effects of Refirme last well beyond the initial treatment because the action on collagen does not stop when the procedure stops. The deep heating pulses of Refirme induce action in collagen that continues from four to six months, maintaining the new, more youthful-looking skin during that time.
Refirme is FDA approved and is a safe, comfortable procedure. Cosmetic surgery facilities nationwide are finding it becoming more and more popular. The painless procedure, lack of recovery time, and quick results make it appealing to a wide base of patients who would never consider actually “going under the knife.
